That's right narcs! I am getting the jump on all you snitches!
After spending weeks in my garage leading up to BF4. I don't want to go sleepless again. 4 hours sleep for 6 days straight leading up to Saturday made me an energy drink zombie from British bike hell.
Let's take a look back in time... I have a perfect attendance record at Born Free. And I'm very proud of that. Making me a de facto Internet AND Land Chopper Wizard.
BORN FREE 1 Bike 1973 Triumph T-140
BORN FREE 2 Bike 1969 Triumph T-120
BORN FREE 3 Bike 1959 Triumph TR-6 Trophy
BORN FREE 4 Bike 1950 Triumph 6T
Many of you know the legend of this BSA I picked up. Long story short, my 1959 Triumph parked out in front of a bar lured and nice old man into my embrace. He had a non-running bike and was down to deal.
I gave him a generator I got for free and $500 bux. He talked himself down from the $600 I offered him.
Chris and I got it running the next day. But it's not very attractive. And ran weird with Chinaman carbs. So Tony at Classic Cycles juiced me with some great condish used Amal 930s.
Then I hit up my buddy Ryan at the Tiger Shack because I had 2 days before riding to Solvang. I have electronic ignitions put in all my unit bikes because they run boss with them. This bike was too sketchy to trust the previous owner's timing.
In my garage was an old, unused prism tank.
My quick cobbling job for the Solvang trip. Grant sold me the K&Q seat so this thing is Born Free to the max!
Here it sits at my bud's shop. TJ Stiles is a super pro at lining tanks and doing fab work that exceeds my abilities. This tank turns my fuel orange with rust. He's in Huntington Beach if you need a ball rub and tug.
I will be taking this apart for paint. I have some lighting ideas, and other crap I've been thinking about how to make work. I've been meaning to do my super secret sissy bar idea for a while...
